If you have an engraver and you're putting segments on plexiglass, why not re-create a vintage edge-lit display?These were made by drilling about 100 dots (you could engrave) for each digit in each piece (0-9), Just make sure no two dots overlapYou would need 10 x 4 = 40 pieces instead of 28, but you're mostly there.Like Nixie displays it's nice to see numbers drawn instead of segments.Nice project though,I like it
I did this to my watch too when I was in school.I had the only lcd watch around with white numbers on a black background.lcd watches were just becoming cheap and common. that was about 37 years ago....
